3 Pack - Doulton Supercarb M15 Water Filter Cartridges
3 Pack - Doulton Supercarb M15 Water Filter Cartridges

5.0 out of 5 stars Good alternative to Franke Triflow FRX01/FR9454 & FRX02/FR9455, 14 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much cheaper than Franke (about half the price at least) and performs the same function. Can't tell the difference in the taste of the water anyway.

Much cheaper than Franke (about half the price at least) and performs the same function - if you want a slightly higher quality filter go for the Doulton Ultracarb which claims to have better activated carbon filtering to remove lead/chlorine etc from water.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gr8 product - original Samsung, 14 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Original Samsung product - Fits the fridge 'socket' perfectly, and it works! It's the recommended original product so enough said - 5 star! I wouldn't risk a cheaper alternative product with an expensive fridge.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looked pretty good - But then the trouble started...., 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
INITIAL REVIEW:

After a couple of months of use this is what I've found - looked like a pretty good tablet at this price (around £126 delivered to Europe in Aug 2013) but it has some drawbacks.

PROS:
1) Nice size
2) Good price
3) Has GPS (over wifi) - good for your travel apps, weather apps etc etc
4) Looks and feels pretty sturdy
5) Has Bluetooth & PC connectivity (via micro USB port) to copy/paste files from tablet to PC and vice-versa - for eg. to backup etc
6) Has all the functions an iPad has bar the below Cons
7) Memory expandable by a further 32Gb via micro SD card
8) Comes with a micro USB to standard USB lead (for PC connection) - but this can be bought for a couple of quid online.
9) Wifi reception is better than the iPad 2.
10) Gr8 resolution for the price (1280x800).

CONS:
1) Screen quality and resolution not as good as the iPad - not as 'crisp & bright'
2) Tends to hang quite often - but will usually come out of the hang given a few seconds to a minute or so! (I understand this is quite a problem on a lot of android devices)
3) Battery seems to be quite erratic - usually gives around 4hrs of play time but this can reduce depending on what programs/apps you are running. Sometimes battery seems to go down quite rapidly.
4) Not a very good camera - have to hold it absolutely stock still in order to take a semi-decent photo with the back camera (also only 2MP, with the front one being only 0.3MP)
5) Screen sensitivity not quite as good as iPad.

All-in-all looked like not a bad tablet considering you are paying around one quarter of the price of an iPad for basically the same functions! Great as an everyday use device for basic apps/reading the news online/accessing the web etc etc. Also make great gifts for kids at this price - without having to worry too much about how they are handling it/damage/breakage etc.

UPDATE Oct 2014:
The more apps you have installed the more often the tablet hangs! I have now got to the stage where the tablet crashed and 95% of the apps are now showing an "app isn't installed" message (even though I can see from the memory usage that they are still installed on the machine but all of a sudden the tablet cannot recognize them for some reason)! I got in touch with the manufacturer and had to have the firmware upgraded and had to reinstall all the apps again.

THE FINAL STRAW: The tablet crashed while playing an app and could not be restarted - completely dead!! And since it is over 1 yr (1yr and 3.5 months ) since I bought it, it is out of warranty and Zoostorm cannot repair it free of charge (and of course it would cost more to repair than to buy a new one!). SO ALL-IN-ALL:

1) IT HANGS A LOT
2) IT HAD TO HAVE THE FIRMWARE UPGRADED AND HAD TO REINSTALL ALL THE APPS AGAIN - V FRUSTRATING AND TIME CONSUMING PROCESS
3) THE FINAL STRAW: IT LASTED JUST OVER 1 YR AND THEN COMPLETELY DIED!! I HAD TO THROW THE TABLET AWAY AS IT WAS MORE EXPENSIVE TO GET IT REPAIRED THAN TO BUY A NEW ONE (AS IT WAS 3.5 MONTHS OUT OF WARRANTY AND ZOOSTORM REFUSED TO EITHER REPAIR IT FREE OR EVEN PARTIALLY REFUND ME)! NOR COULD AMAZON DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT DUE TO THE WARRANTY ISSUE.

- A TABLET I WOULD NOT BUY AGAIN.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Enough to Hold Tablet in But Limited Impact Protection, 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My 10.1" tablet fits nicely enough in this case and is meant as a basic protective cover for everyday use - it will not however protect from more major impacts (as it is not a hard cover case). Great value for money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Did not work with my iPad 2!, 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this item worked for my blackberry, it did not charge my iPad2 as claimed. I will give it 2 stars since the seller promptly refunded me the money...but it is not reliable for iPad2.

5.0 out of 5 stars No complaints on 1.5TB version - working fantastically for 5 yrs and running!, 8 May 2013
Have the 1.5TB version of this drive for 5 yrs now (used almost every day) and not a single complaint. It works great - recognised & read by my 3D HD TV perfectly well also. Not noisy. Nothing bad to write about! Note that it is a USB2 device so will be slower than similar USB3 devices now on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class!! Works great with my Full HD 3D LCD TV, 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although i am only using it for laptop to 3D LCD TV connection at the moment; everything seems to be working fine. The picture quality from laptop to TV seems to be dulled a little bit in the grey range (although this may be more to do with the output from the laptop/graphics card rather than an issue with the lead), but normal colours are bright & vivid so no complaints there. It has sturdy moulded HDMI ends which is what i wanted and is very reasonably priced for the latest version 1.4a hdmi to hdmi lead. Sound is also great. There are cheaper versions but they may have a lower data capacity (lower than 15.2Gbps) than this one...in my opinion better to pay a quid or two extra for a higher spec lead like this (which is presently still very reasonably priced especially for a 5m lead) - which will probably give a better picture when playing full HD movies, 3D movies off DVDs etc. (although I cannot confirm this yet). Recommended buy!
